Return to Kamiah - 2020
 
For the last 9 years we have kicked off the riding season with a weekend overnight ride from Kennewick to Kamiah, Idaho. It was called a Begineer's Ride in past years because we had a least one group that was tailored for new riders or experienced riders wanting to ride a relaxed pace but for most the ride has transitioned to a destination ride with 2-4 groups that ride their own route and pace and some solo riders that elect to meet at the motel in Kamiah.

Many have requested the Kamiah ride to be a 3 day event to have an extra day to take advantage of all the good riding around Kamiah so this year's ride is again scheduled to start on Friday, May 8, with a return on Sunday, May 10. Anyone wishing to join the group on Saturday May 9 is certainly welcome (I will be looking for a volunteer willing to lead a group on Saturday from Kennewick if there is enough interest). We again have a group rate at the Clearwater 12 motel in Kamiah and this year's cost is the same as 2018 .....$59.40 for a single king bed and $70.30 for double queen beds. These costs include tax plus a pretty good continental breakfast and are much less than their normal rates. They are NOT holding a block of rooms for us so everyone needs to make their own reservation to guarantee a room. I would advise making a reservation for May 8 and/or May 9 ASAP if you think you are going, its easy to cancel if your plans change. As of today, every room is available except mine. You can contact the Clearwater 12 on 1-888-935-2826 or 208-935-2671 and tell them you are part of "Steve's Ride" to get the group rate.

Its still a long time until May 8 but I wanted to let everyone know the dates so they can plan accordingly. Follow this thread for updates.

looks like it might be hard to get into the USA if things don't calm down...hopefully they won't be closing state borders either...:unsure:

Holding this event might be a bit more complicated...itís hard to tell what the situation in Kamiah will be in May but if the eating establishments and taverns are closed I donít think anyone will be going.

I'm sure this situation will be resolved by then. We still have a ways to go.
Let's ride baby!

B.Y.O.B. and TV dinners in the microwave...beer should/could be available at the grocery store...my only real concern would be if the motel stays open...I think in these times of stress..real stress..a ride and seeing the smiling faces of good friends is a perfect way to deal with it all...hey I heard gas will be 99 cents a gallon..what better reason do you need?

Well, who knows when the border will reopen to travel and tourism. I will likely not make this ride. But there is always Baker City to lok forward to.

feistygirl222 Mar 19th 2020 12:37 PM

I agree

Steve, Chris Kurtz and I still plan on going. We would like to leave with you from Starbucks at 9:00, if that's your plan?
